Brainstorming how Free Software Australia will broaden FLOSS adoption

Hi everyone,

PeerTube - Peer-to-peer video sharing for the people


Following on from last month's discussion and demonstration of Fed.Wiki we thought that we would explore another corner of the Fediverse, and so this month at Free Software Australia we'll be talking about Peertube. Along with discussing PeerTube itself we'll also explore how it benefits the Fediverse, the decentralised federation of social networks. Big words to speak about an alternative to Youtube that is growing in popularity in the Free/Libre and Open Source Software community, but PeerTube offers us the opportunity to take back control of our media sharing and consumption needs.

Favorite Free Software for 2021

Hi all,

SFD Video Previews and Free Software Video Night

Hey everyone,

User Freedom on the Web

*NOTE CHANGE OF MEETING URL* Free software is defined by the four user freedoms and for a long time these freedoms have been ensured by Free Software licenses like the GPL. While not perfect these licenses help preserve the four freedoms for the kinds of applications we use on our desktop computers that do not involve other computers. Things start to get a bit more complicated when we start making software available over a network and using such software. Mix in the popularity of the World Wide Web and it makes it tricky to preserve these freedoms.
